Privacy Policy

Scroll down to view our Privacy Policy, with specific details about the kind of information we collect when you browse the website and/or become a client.

For any Privacy Policy questions, you can contact us using the details at the bottom of this page.

Who we are

I, Maria Bailey, trading as Lily Rose Ceremonies, collect ‘personal data’ and/or ‘special category data’ as defined by GDPR (data protection legislation).

Our website address is:

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.


This site uses cookies. By continuing to browse the site you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that get put on your computer by websites as you surf them. These cookies can store lots of information which can have privacy implications. We like to think all the cookies used on this site are fairly innocuous but that’s for you to judge.

What cookies do we use?

Session cookies

This website uses a ‘Content Management System’ (CMS) and relies on ‘session cookies’ to function.
No personal information of any sort stored in this cookie and it is detroyed when a user leaves the website ie ‘at the end of a session’.

Anonymous tracking software – Google Analytics

The website may also use Google Analytics (just like virtually everybody else) a service provided by Google.
They gather anonymous data of how people are using this site and then provide us with visitor statistics, details of page views etc etc. You can think of it as being a bit like CCTV but one that automatically blurs your face so we can see what people have done, but not who.

If you are anti-Google you can opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics at
(we’d prefer you didn’t though as this data is seriously helpful to us in improving our website).

Website widgets

There’s so many great free toys you can add to websites these days and rarely can we resist – anything from Twitter buttons to software that powers blog comments. Collectively they make our website more interesting to you as a site visitor. Sadly most of these come with cookies – that’s the ‘price of free’. So if this site uses ‘widgets’ such as Twitter feeds, Social Networking links, YouTube or Vimeo video you may find it is setting cookies as you surf this site.

They probably just collect details of pages visited, anonymise it, aggregate it with several thousand or million others people’s anonymous data and then look at pretty graphs. In many cases the cookies are used to generate identical information to Google Analytics (see above) and indeed use Google Analytics, so opting-out of Google Analytics will also opt you out of these cookies too.

Don’t want any cookies ever?

While we’d love to offer a cookie-free version of our site we are a small company and simply don’t have the resources to provide and maintain one. Unfortunately if you are really anti-cookie then there is no option except to not use our site.
You can remove any cookies we have already put on your machine within your browser settings – pressing Ctrl+Shift+Delete may work in many cases.
We will be sorry to see you go!

How do I turn cookies off?

It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. For example, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to post comments.

All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings will typically be found in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser. In order to understand these setttings, the following links may be helpful, otherwise you should use the ‘Help’ option in your browser for more details.
